".....your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit..." 1Cor 6:19

When one goes through a serious disease, family and friends flock around you like a warm, soft cocoon..protecting and soothing their loved one.  It is in this attention that I gratefully find myself.  They are my ministers of peace and serenity and provision. 

Two of my sweet sisters sent a care package to me teeming with healthy goodies to help build up my immune system before the poison invasion. Also enclosed was a CD with a collection of wonderful spiritual songs to bring me into His presence in worship.

I have a juicer, books on eating healthy (raw vegetables and fruit, some organic grains and the like), books concerning alternative methods of healing and books on healing prayer

My cup overflows with the outpouring of love!

Everyone who knows me, knows a cheeseburger with everything on it , a large helping of french fries, a diet coke and just about anything chocolate is what I liked to eat! 

All my life I've devoted myself to eating rich, fatty foods and jumping from diet to diet. I've tried them all in my quest to satisfy my flesh.
That may be or may not be why I've contracted this cancer,
but one thing I do know.....

it got my attention!

It's time to be satisfied at the table of the Lord and not the trough of overindulgence.  My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. God took great care in the design of  His old testament temple. Immense wealth was placed in its construction.  How much more valuable is my body to Him?

I am fearfully and wonderfully's about time
I took better care of my body which houses
 my Lord Jesus Christ.

Whether it be healthy food, exercise, plenty of rest or entertainment,

I will surrender my body to the Lord and glorify Him in my life.
